Form & Verdict

Unexposed 6yo who switches to a handicap chase after finishing third in two Plumpton maiden hurdles during the winter (2m4f/2m); seems versatile regarding ground and has plenty of scope for improvement if he takes well to fences.

Nine-race maiden but he has form figures of 2223 in his completed starts over fences and that latest third was a big run at Taunton (2m; stable debut) after a long absence; seems versatile ground-wise and this prominent-racer should give it another good shot.

Ex-Irish 8yo; well beaten on first three hurdle runs for this yard but kept on for very respectable fourth here (2m, good) in May then ran big race when second from out of the weights in Cartmel chase (2m1f, good) a week ago; effectively 7lb lower from correct mark today; must be considered.
